Theme: Overcoming Differences/Injustice

Can you believe 2013 is almost over?!  
I am celebrating because my grad school class is OVER!

It's Wednesday, so that means:
This week's theme: Overcoming Differences/ Injustice
When I was teaching theme earlier this year, the kids kept telling me that this theme was "very serious."  Note that they are 10, and this class really likes light hearted books.

Smoky Night by David Diaz
Freedom Summer by Deborah Wiles
The Butterfly by Patricia Polacco
Who doesn't LOVE Patricia Polacco?  If you don't follow her on Facebook you should!

Freedom School, Yes! by Amy Littlesugar
Fishing Day by Andrea Davis Pinkey
The Other Side by Jacqueline Woodson
This book is a favorite for our friend and teacher, Tracy!

What books do you use to teach injustice?
